What is the speedy way to rehydrate dried fruit if we have forgotten to soak it?

Rehydrating fruit in a bowl of cold water for at least an hour is easy and produces a good result. However, if you are rushed, put the fruit in a saucepan, cover it with boiling water and then soak it for 15 minutes before cooking normally. You can also cover dried fruit with water and heat it in a bowl in the microwave on Medium for about 5 minutes.

Do we need to wash dried fruit before using it?

It is advisable to wash any dried fruit that has been bought loose. Place it in a colander and rinse well under a cold, running tap. Dried fruit that is bought in sealed vacuum packs does not need to be washed.
